What do you think of transferring kids from failing schools to non failing schools? What if the kids are far behind in their learning? How far will the teachers have to go to accommodate these kids? Will they be able to catch up? Oh, and what happens if these kids bring down the test scores so much that the non failing schools start to fail?

Better question is why are there any failing schools? If I had a kid in a failing school, I would want a transfer. I would look into tutoring if they are behind.

The schools I am actually thinking of have after school tutoring. I did testing at one of them for Sylvan. You should see the school. Inner city, mostly poor folk, but gee, its a lovely school. Prettier than most. Wonder where all their cash went....

It's pretty sad that we send so much money to everybody, but we can't take care of our own right here at home. Infuriating, really.

I know. I sure hope they stay out of the whole Syria business. I am to the point of as long as they arent messing with us, let them sort their own problems out. They just end up hating us more when we go over to make them comply with what we think is right. Heck, there are whole towns around here that should be put out of their misery. They want to kill each other so bad erect a big fence and let them go at it.

Am hearing you on that, Kirs, but it is hard to keep them inside the fence!

Been a while. Pumkin, pecan, or some other kind of desert on your thankgiving table?

I am a pecan person. My mom makes it for me. I don't like pumpkin pie.

I don't think I've ever had pecan pie - not a big fan of pecans or really, any kind of nuts in my pies. I always make pumpkin at Thanksgiving and Christmas and a cherry cheese pie. I made my first coconut chess pie the week before. I like that a lot and will make that again. It's really easy too.

We had pecan, cheesecake, and pumpkin. Love the pecan and cheesecake

My Mom never made the cheesecake one. We used to have pumpkin and mincemeat when I was growing up. Never took to the mincemeat one much. It's really sweet and I think just the idea that "meat" was in its name was enough to keep me from eating it as a kid! I think Mom used to make apple pie for New Year's. I don't usually make pies for New Year's.

We just needed another desert and I suggested pudding pie or cheesecake.
